Thornton Cemetery Visitation Centre
Location: Thornton Cemetery, Oshawa, ON
The Situation: As Oshawa grows so does the demand for a more full-service cemetery facility, in line with current trends which the client was eager to adopt. As operational activities must go on during funerals and visitations, design elements were needed to avoid any distraction that might come from such activities.
The Solution and Result: A concept was developed for the open space around the central, prominent building. It included parking space and unified design elements in harmony with existing roads and memorial spaces. The detailed design includes extensive planting, a classic selection of light fixtures, bollards, and paving materials.
This Snow Larc project was nominated for an Oshawa Urban Design Award.
